    • The Real Winner of the PresidentialElectionwashingtonsblog.comNovember 8, 2012The Federal Reserve Is the Real WinnerUS News and World Report notes that Bernanke helped Obama to get re-elected by juicing theeconomy … at least temporarily: The Federal Reserve had a key role in the presidential election—possibly even a decisive one. Exit poll results show that, not surprisingly, a majority of voters said the struggling economy was their top concern …. In the end, voters seemed to believe the economy was gradually getting better, and Obama deserved more time to make things right. *** Without question, the biggest factor impacting the economy this fall was the Federal Reserve’s decision in September to extend its controversial quantitative easing program indefinitely, until the economy is back on track for good. This type of monetary easing is an arcane strategy that doesn’t directly impact consumers. But it can have a powerful effect on the economy that filters through to ordinary people in many important ways. And the biggest advocate of quantitative easing has been Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke. *** Consumer confidence, in fact, rose sharply in the weeks leading up to the election, even as
    • business leaders were becoming more worried about problems such as the looming fiscal cliff. That’s one thing that pushed our Obamanometer reading onto Obama’s side. The Fed probably had as much to do with that as anything else. *** Bernanke has also shown himself to be a pragmatist determined to do whatever is necessary to help the economy recover today, even if it risks unpleasant consequences—such as higher inflation—in the future. Voters seem to approve. So maybe the politicians ought to listen.While Romney is as mainstream economically as Obama, he did make noises about auditing the Fed,criticized additional Fed easing, called Fed stimulus “artificial”, “ineffective” and “just making it up”,promised to appoint some monetary hawks, and said that he would challenge Bernanke’s re-appointment.Some of it was undoubtedly attempting to appease Ron Paul supporters (and other libertarians), whohate the Fed. But at least some of it appears to have been genuine.As such, the big winner from the election is the Federal Reserve.Postscript: Numerous economists say that we must end or substantially rein in the Fed. Both liberaland conservative protesters – Occupy and Tea Party alike – have railed against the unchecked powerof the Federal Reserve.Support among the public and House for auditing the Fed is almost 100% … but Democratic Senateleader Reid has vowed to kill an audit (even though he previously supported it). Given that Obama hasbeen re-elected, and the Dems have kept the Senate, it appears that the Fed will retain its powerswithout any real checks or balances.Marc Faber and Jim Rogers: “Obama is aDisaster… You Should Buy Yourself aMachine Gun”investmentwatchblog.comNovember 8, 2012Marc Faber, publisher of the Gloom Boom, & DoomReport, told Bloomberg Television’s Trish Regan andAdam Johnson on “Street Smart” today that “Mr.Obama is a disaster for business and a disaster forthe United States” and that he “thought that themarket on his reelection should be down at least50%.”Faber also said “I doubt [Obama] will stay at thepresidency for another four years. I think there will
    • be so many scandals” and that investors should “buy themselves a machine gun.”I am surprised with the reelection of Mr. Obama. The S&P is only down like 30 points. I would havethought that the market on his reelection should be down at least 50%…I think Mr. Obama is adisaster for business and a disaster for the United States. Not that Mr. Romney would be muchbetter, but the Republicans understand the problem of excessive debt better than Mr. Obamawho basically doesn’t care about piling up debt.You also have in the background Mr. Bernanke, whowith artificially low interest rates enables the debt to essentially escalate endlessly.”On where he sees the equity markets given Obama’s reelection:“You have offsetting factors. The problem with Mr. Obama is that you get more regulation and it’sdisincentive for businessmen to hire people. You probably also get higher taxes, so in terms of theeconomy, he is very negative in my view. But you still have Mr. Bernanke, and you still have becauseof money printing very high corporate earnings. They are now coming down, but they are still at theelevated level. You have money printing supporting the market and on the other hand, you have aneconomic slowdown globally which will affect earnings negatively. It is difficult to tell where themarket will go because we have so much manipulation. I think, minimum, it will drop 20%.”On how investors should protect their assets:“They should buy themselves a machine gun…I need to buy a tank. Joking aside, look, we havemanipulated markets. Whenever you manipulate markets, you will get unintended consequences. ithink the reelection is unintended consequence of money printing, that favors the so- called 0.25%. Itwas easy for the Democrats to attack the wealthy fat cats of Wall Street, the elite, and the privilegedpeople to portray them as a profiteer of the system, which to some extent, they are. Not because theywanted to but because Mr. Bernanke enabled them to be profiteers. We have a situation where you havetoday Mr. Obama, I doubt he will stay at the presidency for another four years. I think there will be somany scandals, but that’s another story.”On why he believes Obama won’t make it another four years as president:“There is so much smoke. I suppose there is some fire. That is my observation. We don’t know how theworld will look in five years’ time. I am pretty sure central banks will continue to print money and thestandards of living for people in the western world, not just in America, will continue to declinebecause the cost of living increases will exceed income. The cost of living will also go up because allkinds of taxes will increase. Like Proposition 30 today in California is of course negative for the
    • Californian economy. That is the state of the world. We have worsening economic conditions, but wehave money printing.”On Speaker Boehner’s comments to Congress today on the fiscal cliff:“I am sure that they will solve it. They will increase cosmetically some taxes and they will cutcosmetically some spending and it will all be back loaded 10 years from now. So in reality, not muchwill happen. But the market tends to rally towards year-end, and i think from a low of around 1360, wecould have a rally to January, but I think sometime next year will be again lower.”On whether he sees the U.S. in recession in 2013:“Yes, I think that if the figures were compiled properly. If nominal GDP was adjusted by a proper pricedeflator, we would probably already be in recession…But I would like to point out one thing about theeconomy. GDP is not a very relevant figure. It consists of many different sectors of the economy, soyou can have some sectors that are improving like housing and others that are worsening.”On his dollar and euro positions:“This is the choice in life. You choose what is less bad. I don’t particularly like Mr. Obama, but I thinkhe is less bad for the world than Mr. Romney. It is a tragedy of life that both candidates did not lose theelection. They would have deserved both to lose.”Previously sees a 20% decline ahead for the Dow and S&P 500 from their recent highs.Jim Rogers: Obama re-election means disaster is now guaranteedUnder Obama’s first term in office, the Federal Reserve slashed interest rates to near zero and pumpedthe economy with trillions of dollars in fresh liquidity via a monetary policy tool known as quantitativeeasing, under which the U.S. central bank buys bonds from banks and floods the economy with excessmoney supply to encourage investing and hiring.Republican challenger Mitt Romney has said he opposes such policy and suggested he would notrenew Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke’s term when it expires in January 2014.Now that Obama is set to preside for another four years, expect the Fed to keep monetary policy loosewith the aim of spurring investing and hiring, when in reality, inflation rates are on the rise.“It’s going to be more inflation, more money printing, more debt, more spending,” Rogers toldCNBC just prior to Obama’s re-election.Investors should avoid U.S. government debt and the dollar and stock up on gold.“It’s not going to be good for you me or anybody else,” Rogers said.Gephardt: Stock Market Is At Risk Of Losing 2,000 Points Within The Next Few WeeksThere is some risk that the public could hear some “histrionics” from Democrats and Republicansplaying to their bases as Congress works on spending cuts and tax reform, all of which could severelyunsettle the markets, the former House majority leader said Wednesday.“If it looks like that is happening you could have a couple really bad days on Wall Street,” DickGephardt said at an event hosted by National Journal magazine. “You could have the markets drop by1,000 or 2,000 points.” (The event was titled “The Day After: The 2012 Election Debrief.”)
    • Julian Assange says Victorious BarackObama ‘Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing’AFPNovember 8, 2012WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Wednesday described re-elected US President Barack Obama asa "wolf in sheeps clothing" and said he expected his government to continue attacking the anti-secrecywebsite.Speaking to AFP by telephone from Ecuadors London embassy, where he sought asylum in June in abid to avoid extradition to Sweden over sex crime allegations, Assange said Obamas victory was nocause for celebration."Obama seems to be a nice man, and that is precisely the problem," the 41-year-old Australian said,after the president defeated Republican Mitt Romney on Tuesday night to sweep back into the WhiteHouse."Its better to have a sheep in wolfs clothing than a wolf in sheeps clothing."He added: "All of the activities against WikiLeaks by the United States have occurred under an Obamaadministration."The Republican party has not been an effective restraining force on government excesses over the lastfour years."There is no reason to believe that will change -- in fact, the Republicans will push the administrationinto ever greater excesses."Assange called on the United States to free Bradley Manning, the soldier accused of leaking a hugecache of classified military documents to WikiLeaks and has been held in solitary confinement in a
    • military prison for over two years."The re-election of Barack Obama coincides with the 899th day of Bradley Mannings confinement,"Assange said.WikiLeaks enraged Washington in 2010 by leaking thousands of classified US documents on the warsin Iraq and Afghanistan and embarrassing diplomatic cables from US embassies around the world.Assange was arrested that same year.He denies the allegations of rape and sexual assault and claims that if he is extradited to Sweden hecould be passed on to the United States and prosecuted, facing treatment similar to Mannings or eventhe death sentence.U.N. Celebrates Obama Re-election byPushing Global Gun Control, says SecondAmendment FoundationSecond Amendment FoundationNov 8, 2012Less than 24 hours after winning re-election, President Barack Obama’s administration joined withChina, France, Germany and the United Kingdom, and more than 150 other governments, in supportingrenewed debate on the proposed United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, confirming the worst fears ofthe American gun rights community. The vote came at the U.N. General Assembly’s meeting of theFirst Committee on Disarmament at the world organization’s headquarters in New York City.
    • “It’s obvious that our warnings over the past severalmonths have been true,” said Alan Gottlieb, founderand executive vice president of the SecondAmendment Foundation. “The election was calledabout 11 p.m. Tuesday and by 11 a.m. this morning,we got word that the United States was supporting thisresolution. We have to be more vigilant in our effortsto stop this proposed treaty.”SAF Operations Director Julianne Versnel, who hasbeen back and forth to the United Nations over thisproposal, said the fight is not finished. The measurewill be considered for finalization in March 2013.“We will continue to monitor this issue and oppose any effort to enforce a global gun control measure,”she stated.Amnesty International issued a statement Wednesday lauding passage of the resolution, saying thetreaty will protect human rights.“The right of self-defense is a human right,” Gottlieb countered, “and in this country, the SecondAmendment protects that right.“Just days ago as he campaigned for re-election,” he concluded, “Barack Obama told his supportersthat voting is the ‘best revenge.’ I guess now we know what he was talking about. The revenge he seeksis against American gun owners and their Second Amendment rights.”The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempteducation, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritageto privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the publicabout the consequences of gun control.Obama decision puts America on trajectorytoward financial mega-disasterMike AdamsNatural NewsNov 8, 2012
    • The re-election of Obama was more thanthe mere selection of one man overanother; it was an endorsement of a set ofeconomic policies that are now launchingAmerica into a trajectory that can only endin economic disaster.With the election now etched in the historybooks, America has endorsed an endlessgovernment spending spree that can nolonger be held in check. There is only oneoutcome now for the United States ofAmerica: A grand finale blowout of moneycreation, hyperinflation, collapse andtyranny.This point is not a debate; it is mathematical fact. Just as 2 + 2 = 4, the economic policies pursued byPresident Obama and the Federal Reserve can only equal the utter financial demise of the U.S. dollar.This is explained in more detail, below.Fortunately, the number of U.S. dollars in circulation around the world serves as a kind of “heat sink”that slows the arrival of the final blowout collapse. So this process may take years to unfold, butObama seems to determined to accelerate its arrival for reasons that may become clear as you continueto read this article.The curse of compounding debtPresently, Obama is spending over $1 trillion a year more than the U.S. government confiscates in so-called “revenue” (taxes, essentially). Because the global demand to purchase this much debt isinsufficient to cover the full amount, the private Federal Reserve has stepped in and promised topurchase the U.S. debt by issuing more fiat currency that the U.S. Treasury will owe back to the Fed.This is now being called “QE unlimited.” It means unlimited money creation.Mathematically, this is called “the curse of compounding debt.” It means you’re paying interest on themoney you borrowed to pay the interest on the money you already owe. As this debt compounds, itmultiplies itself over and over again, quickly escalating to the point where it ends catastrophically.During this process, which can take several years to ramp up, the debt blowout is notimmediately obvious. In the early years, prices keep rising but not necessarily rapidly enough tocause immediate panic. Sure, the bread you buy this year costs 40% more than the bread youbought last year, but nobody is carting around wheelbarrows of cash… not yet, anyway. As the currency devaluation and price inflation reach their stride, more frequent price increases start to concern citizens who suddenly discover their paychecks are rapidly becoming worthless. This inevitably leads to protests in the streets, and in an Obama administration — staffed by economic juveniles who are astonishingly ignorant of market principles — this will quickly lead to dreaded PRICE CONTROLS. Why price controls cause immediate supply shortages and starvation Once the price controls are announced, it’s time to hunker down,
    • lock and load, and start protecting your stored food. Why?Because price controls always lead to immediateshortages.A price control is an artificial government restriction on thefree market trading of goods or services. It’s economics 101:When prices are kept artificially low, demand is madeartificially high while supply can’t keep up. Theresult? Empty food shelves.The empty food shelves will, in turn, lead to riots in thestreets. Why? Because people are starving, angry andpanicked. Imagine the aftermath of Hurricane Sandymultiplied by a thousand, happening everywhere from coastto coast. That’s a small hint of what’s coming for Obama’sAmerica.Riots in the streets lead to Martial LawOnce the riots in the streets reach a crescendo, the President will have little choice but to declareMartial Law and use the opportunity to deploy troops on the streets. From there, the nation alreadyhas one foot in the door of runaway police state tyranny.This is the point where, historically, nations have engaged in the mass rounding up of political enemiesor “undesirable” demographics: The Jews, the rebels, even the academics as we saw in the Communist-led Cultural Revolution in China.There, the communists (i.e. the 1960′s equivalent of today’s Obama followers) rounded up over 7million human beings, targeting farmers, academics and anyone who could think for themselves, andthen slaughtered them in cold blood.I know this from first-hand accounts, by the way. Remember: I speak Mandarin Chinese, and I lived inAsia for two years. I have personally spoken to survivors of the Chinese holocaust — people whoescaped and fled to Taiwan. As explained on MassViolence.org: The widespread phenomenon of mass killings in the Cultural Revolution consisted of five types: 1) mass terror or mass dictatorship encouraged by the government – victims were humiliated and then killed by mobs or forced to commit suicide on streets or other public places; 2) direct killing of unarmed civilians by armed forces; 3) pogroms
    • against traditional “class enemies” bygovernment-led perpetrators such aslocal security officers, militias andmass; 4) killings as part of politicalwitch-hunts (a huge number of suspectsof alleged conspiratorial groups weretortured to death during investigations);and 5) summary execution of captives,that is, disarmed prisoners fromfactional armed conflicts. The mostfrequent forms of massacres were thefirst four types, which were all state-sponsored killings. The degree of brutality in the mass killings of the Cultural Revolution was veryhigh. Usually, the victims perished only after first being humiliated, struggled and then imprisoned fora long period of time.This is where America is headed, folks. The TSA fulfills the “mass terror / dictatorship” role once it isdeployed on the streets of America. Meanwhile, Obama’s supporters are already engaged in threats ofviolence against all political opponents, and inciters of violence like Michael Moore havepromoted videos encouraging destruction and violence while saying things like, “We’ll burn thismother f*%#er down,” followed by “Yes we can” in Spanish. (Si, se puede.)In this kind of behavior, we are watching the rise of a new gang of violent-minded Obammunistswho can’t wait to engage in the mass murder of conservative Americans: Farmers, veterans andespecially gun owners. The desire is to have them all rounded up, tortured, and then either murdered orsent to re-education camps. This is where it’s all headed now.The ten steps to tyranny under ObammunismGetting from today’s America to an oppressive, tyrannical “Obammunism” police state is faster andeasier than you think. Here’s how it might unfold, in review:1) Runaway government spending forces nation into debt spiral.2) Fed prints new currency and buys debt, compounding existing debt.3) Debt explodes, causing runaway price inflation.4) Rising prices lead to citizen protests.5) Government initiates price controls to try to halt protests. 6) Shelves are emptied of food as people starve. 7) Mass riots begin. 8) Government initiates Martial Law. 9) Troops are rolled out onto the streets. 10) Under the cover of Martial Law, the mass rounding up of political opponents begins, complete with torture, public humiliation, murder and re-education camps. Obama supporters are almost universally ignorant of history This is not mere conjecture, this is HISTORY, and history is doomed to repeat itself, especially among those who are ignorant of it.
    • And nobody is more ignorant of history todaythan Obama supporters who seem to have noclue that they are members of a personalitycult that has swept them into a dangerousfervor where anything is excusable: Threatsof violence, rioting, murder and worse.America is just a few steps away from all thisnot just happening, but actually beingsocially acceptable! “We rounded up somerebel preppers today,” will be theannouncement on the evening news. “Andsent them to rehabilitation camps.” (Thenewsroom cheers…)Mass murder in the name of ObamaMany times in humanity’s past, this verything has been accepted as perfectlylegitimate by intelligent populations. German citizens, for example, saw this happening right undertheir noses and believed it was acceptable behavior by a government. The same is true for the Chineseunder Mao Zedong and the citizens of Cambodia under Pol Pot.What makes you think today’s zombified voters — people are have already been brainwashed to giveup their constitutional rights in response to an utterly fabricated “war on terror” — will be any smarterin their response to a planned financial collapse?The inescapable truth of the matter is that Obama’s followers will commit mass murder in his name— gleefully, willfully and with a sense of pride and even patriotism. There is no wrong that can becommitted in Obama’s name, his cult followers believe. And the fact that those people are now leaningtowards violence in their political rhetoric is a red flag warning of dire things yet to come.People like Michael Moore are racial instigators of violence and hate. And yet, astonishingly, hisvideo remains perfectly acceptable to YouTube, the same video site that bans anything critical of theTSA (as I personally found out last year with the release of my “TSA Help Wanted” video).Those who preach hate and violence must be stopped The endless racism attacks on conservatives by Obama supporters are reprehensible and even dangerous. They risk inciting a backlash from conservatives who, frankly, are far better armed than the Obama crowd. When Bill Maher recently warned Romney supporters that “Black people know who you are and they will come after you,” he made that statement in total ignorance of the sheer number of AR-15s awaiting whatever hapless gang bangers would even attempt such a suicide mission. Really? You want to hunt down some whiteys and have a go at some race-based crime? While some feminine-leaning “metrosexual” men may be easily found in cities, once you venture out into rural America, you’re facing a different
    • beast altogether: Country boys can unleash a 7.62 x51mm round through your skull at 600 yards, and ifpushed into a corner, they have no moral reservationagainst killing someone who threatens their family orcommunity.Don’t mess with conservative America, folks. All thattalk of hatred and violence is only being tolerated rightnow because country boys don’t want to waste theammo on you yet. Keep up that talk, Michael Mooreand Bill Maher, and sooner or later somebody who hasrun out of patience is likely to teach you what “reachout and touch someone” really means in U.S. MarineScout Sniper school.I don’t condone any of that, of course. My advice is forObama cultists to tone down the violent rhetoric beforethey set off something they wish they hadn’t. Violenceis never the best way to resolve political differences,although throughout world history it has certainly beenthe most common way.The bottom line in all this is that once the debt collapsebegins, it’s the preppers who have the firepower, theskills, the food, the water and the farmland. It’s the veterans, the farmers and the local sheriffs whohave the know-how to get through tough times. While Obamabot voters have put America on acollision with economic collapse, they remain clueless of the reality that they are bringing about theirown destruction in the process.After all, who would you rather be hanging with when the collapse comes: Michael Moore, or JamesWesley Rawles?EndGame Blue Print to Global Enslavement VIDEO BELOWhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-CrNlilZho&ob=av3eTerror Storm a Histroy of False Flag Terror VIDEO BELOWhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrXgLhkv21YThe Obama Deception The Truth About Barry Soetoro AKA Barack Obama VIDEO BELOWhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAaQNACwaLwFall of the Republic The Destruction of America VIDEO BELOWhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VebOTc-7shUPolice State 4: The Rise of FEMA VIDEO BELOWhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Klqv9t1zVwwhttp://www.infowars.com/
